*Melt the Nutella in the microwave for 30 seconds until warm and slightly thinner. Alternatively, place Nutella in a metal bowl over a pot of simmering water (being careful not to have any water touch the Nutella, or it will seize), until heated through.
**Don't worry if it looks smaller than an average pancake! They will become larger when adding the extra batter over the top. Don't be tempted to add any more than the recommended 2 tablespoons for the base, or you will have a mess. Trust me.
